We are ready for spring and for growing, and to start seeing green outside again. Basically we are ready to start gardening again. We looked forward to having a garden when we bought our house and look forward to eating straight out of our garden. We are growing everything from seeds again this year. Most of what we are growing have short germination periods which are great for growing with kids. Choosing fast growing seeds for kids keeps them interested in watching them instead of getting bored and forgetting about the seeds they planted.
Fast Growing Seeds for Kids to Grow

We choose seeds based on what we want to eat. My kids will walk into our garden and eat tomato, cucumbers and peas straight from the vine. It is just a bonus that most are very fast growing. We also planted a few different flower seeds as we want to grow them for the bees and because we like how pretty they look planted around the yard.
We bought many of our seeds individually over the last few years, and instead of spending more money to buy plants already growing from a garden center at planting time we decided to grow our own again. My kids are older and a lot more interested in watching the growing process happen.
Starting Seeds Inside
We bought grow lights a few years ago when we bought seeds for the first time for our garden. Amazon has a lot of options to chose from depending on what you need. We bought seed pod trays to create our own little greenhouses to help our plants grow.
Fast Growing Seeds – Vegetables
Fast Growing Seeds – Flowers
Fast Growing Seeds – Herbs
Herbs can be a little trickier for some to grow as they need a little water, everyday. Then again, they can be great for kids that like to water plants.
